Good service, great menu choices, absolutely the best pizza. I even ate the crust. Cool location by u of south Alabama. Corner old shell and university. Outside seating too. Funky staff but very friendly.

We stopped in for an appetizer and drinks. The service and food were great. We stayed a while and weren't rushed at all.

Thanks for the awesome review! There may or may not be some sort of sorcery involved. We will NEVER be able to reveal our secrets though. We promise next time that your service will be above quality to match our pizza!

Superior option to the Pizza chains. Great varieties of pizza beyond the usual pepperoni or hamburger. Great food, good service.
